One of the brightest, most memorable highlights of our entire trip!
Avaliou em 14 de Junho de 2019
My husband and I were on a biking trip and were scheduled to stay at Manoir Belle Noë for one night. We were aware that this was an historic home and that we would have our meal there that night, and we anticipated that we would have a positive experience. However, we could not have imagined how truly delightful and special our time there would be. From the moment we peddled to the house, we were greeted by Loïc and Marie, the manor's charming and gracious owners, along with their adorable and comical dogs. They showed us to our room and made us feel right at home. The room was clean and you could really feel the history behind it, which my husband and I just loved. Loïc and Marie thoughtfully arranged dinner at a time that was convenient for us, which gave us an opportunity to walk around the gorgeous grounds of the estate; you should definitely do this–they're gorgeous. When we came in from our walk, we were greeted with the wonderful surprise of Loïc and Marie offering us a glass of wine and chatting with us before they served us dinner and ate right along with us. We couldn't believe what a delicious, multi-course meal they made; it was clearly prepared with great skill and attention to detail. Moreover, because they remembered well in advance that I was a vegetarian, there was more than enough for me to eat. They were incredibly kind, funny, engaging, warm, and lovely hosts, and it felt like a genuine gift to get to know them and the history of their home. And although they would have been perfectly capable of speaking with us in English and gave us the choice, they sensitively took our lead and spoke in French with us throughout the entire evening, giving us a valuable opportunity to immerse ourselves in the language. We left wishing we could stay and spoke fondly of our time with them during our trip. And on our flight back to Boston, as we reflected on the highlights on our time in France, our stay at Manoir Belle Noë with Loïc and Marie was the first thing we mentioned. Whatever you do, treat yourself to staying here. And many, many thanks, Loïc and Marie, for a magical time! We'll definitely be back!
Fantastically Wonderful Surprise and Experience

So it started kind of funny in that my wife and I were on a cycling ride and had thought that after a long hot ride we had reach the village of Dol and thought we were done, only to find out that we had about 4 or 5K more to ride to the Manor.
We were angry at the world (it was a hot long ride day), but when we finally arrived and were greeted we could barely keep our mouths shut at how WONDERFUL IT ALL WAS.
This is not a Marriott, this is not a chain hotel, this is revisiting a wonderful life, time and traveling style long past.
The lady of the house, her wonderful son and loving (and beyond beautiful) dogs were such a heart warming surprise.
Dinner was home cooked and fantastic, the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on.
I was truly amazed at the place and experience.
Fantastic and thanks very much for their hospitality.
Avoid by all means ; Surcouf who once owned the place must be gutted..

We turned up to realise that the land lady was not expecting us (as her husband who had taken our booking had failed to inform her). We were then shown our double room (EUR 115 a night in October during the week, not a week end) and realised that someone's newspaper and glasses had been left on the bed. The "print" of the body was still there. We were also told not to use the bath, as it leaks, or the water could end up on the floor board. The alternative solution was a shower upstairs, but I am not joking it was full of dead flies when I had a look. Very disappoint considering the stylish website and appearance of the façade. Oh and yes, we left immediately and went to Cancale instead..
Pity no one was in when we arrived!

This was pre-booked for us as part of our cycling holiday, we arrived at 4.30, on our bikes, only to find that the whole place was deserted, no one at home. Walking around this enormous house, hoping to find someone, we couldn't help but notice it is fairly tired and in need of a coat of paint. We rang the house telephone number which is on the gate, and the owners on their mobile number we had been given, all to no avail. About 5.15pm a car arrived, we assumed the owner but no, he was a local man who had an appointment with the owner (who is apparently the local Mayor) and he had arrived a little early, so he was waiting with us. We were tired, dehydrated and hungry, but hung on quite a bit longer as its a long bike ride back to town, but by 5.45 we gave up, and were lucky to get the last room in the Hotel de Bretangne, which was superb. Our luggage -which had been delivered to the Manoir early that day- was returned to us by Madame owner that evening, with a vague apology. We will stick to proper hotels in future, run by proffessionals, with trained staff, so lesson learnt on that front. As a previous reviewer says, 'this is not your average place to stay" but if it was average, there would at least have been someone to let us in!

This is not your average place to stay. It is out in the country about ten minutes from Dol de Bretagne. We used it for a home base for visits to Mont Saint Michelle, etc. Dol is a perfect little micro France....anything you need is there plus good local restaurants.
There are three rooms-all of which are reached by a fairly tight, wooden circular staircase. We had the top one...the best...and it was very roomy with an unusual Chinese wooden bathtub. Shower was one floor down. Cross ventilation was possible and a nice view from our end of the room windows. Breakfast was very good. The only negative, and this would be for some people as we thought it made it more like home, is that the building AWAY from the rooms is slightly worn down. It is probably at least 300 years ago and they are in the process of very slowly restoring it. From the outside it is a fairy tale. If you can be just a little tolerant of something not perfect, this is a charming place to visit.
